H.S. boys basketball: Milton bolts from Shikellamy with huge run

Mowery hits 7 threes for Shikellamy


C.J. Tyler ended the scoring drought for the Braves, making the back end of a two-shot technical foul, for the first Shikellamy point in nearly a quarter of action. Milton led 64-37 at that point.

Before the Black Panthers turned a tight game into a runaway, the Braves' Austin Mowery developed quite a liking for the corner 3-pointer.

Working himself open along the perimeter, Mowery used a quick release to repeatedly get a shot before the Milton defense was able to rotate and defend. Mowery scored the Braves' first three field goals, all from beyond the arc.

By the time the first half was over, he connected on seven 3-pointers, keeping the Braves within striking distance as Milton led 32-28 at the break.

While he did most of his damage shooting the ball from the perimeter, Mowery was active on defense to keep the game close in the first half.

With the Black Panthers switching their defense in the second half, Travis Krall and Heidel took over inside.

"Wade Heidel did the job on them," Bruno said.
